inside out

Personal development starts with changing the internal behaviors, thoughts and habits, and top performers recognize that it is the inside world that must change.    The world outside our thoughts, habits, feelings and desires really doesn’t care about you, it cares about itself.    Other people care about themselves that is their first and most present concern.  

Survival comes first, not second, not third but first.   When there is sufficiency to satisfy needs then the needs of others may become important.    Just look at how our society works today.    Look at the entertainment industry, which is all about making the “I” feel good.    

People in the top 3-5%, spend time developing themselves and are on the road to continuous improvement.  

How much time do you spend reading each year?

What are you working on?
